|Winter Variations - Andreja Andric|
Music for three exhibitions of Europism (a mock- avantgarde movement invented by Dimitrije Tadic and Maja Josifovic) in Belgrade in 2001. Each variation uses a different sound feature (sine waves, overtones, mixtures, noises, vibratos, envelope changes, pulsations). All are based on interwoven circles of pure fifths.

|99 Meditations on Chords and Colors - Andreja Andric|
An audiovisual hypermedia-based work that attempts to "open new avenues into silence" (runme.org). During most of history the loudest sounds we knew were thunder and church bell. Music used to be rare, and sounds of musical instruments used to be refreshing and exciting. Today we are overcrowded with sounds: music in supermarkets, bars, and in our earphones; traffic sounds in the street, advertising, movies, TV, radio, internet.....

|Waves and Waterfall-Study - Andreja Andric|
The Waterfall Study for piano or piano emulation, composed in 2001, features a rhythmical interplay of many repeated phrases that blend together into a rich, waterfall-like soundscape on a single chord. See notes below for the piano emulation details. "Waves" from 1991 was based on a similar idea, however results in darker, sparser, more bell-like sound. Waves were recorded by Ana Zorana Brajovic on Boesendorfer grand piano in the Belgrade Music Academy Studio in 1992.

|Flutes and Piano - Andreja Andric|
Circle for five flutes, composed in 1994, is an exercise in democracy for five performers (see the score in pdf below). Each performer picks their path through a collection of rhythmical phrases. The accidental clashes between the individual lines fuse into a unique, rhythmical flow. By contrast, long, irregular, thick harmonies of the "Shattered" for piano from 1991, lonely, isolated notes, and abrupt changes in register, rhythm and dynamic, explore the poetry of broken things...

|Stripes-Chords - Andreja Andric|
Throughout most of history people lived in relative silence. News and stories, entertainment and art were rare, precious and exciting. Few things ever changed. Today we are overwhelmed with all sorts of information and stimuli. News, music, ads, video, internet constantly claim our attention and every moment of our day we must filter through a huge mass of quickly changing content. It follows that art of our time needs to seek and create new empty spaces and new silences; spaces and time interva...
